theory will finally face lawmakers. peter strzok behind closed doors with the house judiciary committee. good morning, everyone, and welcome to "early start" on an extraordinarily busy news wednesday. >> yes, it is. i'm christine romans. it is wednesday, june 27th. it is 4:00 a.m. exactly in the east. good morning, everyone. it is the biggest upset of the political season so far. ten-term incumbent democrat joe crowley ousted in new york's 14th district primary by democratic socialist alexandria ocasio-cortez. the 28-year-old latina trouncing crowley in her first political campaign. congressman crowley is the fourth-ranked democrat in the house leadership. two democratic lawmakers said tonight the upset significantly alters the competition for the speaker's gavel if -- big if -- democrats take the house. >> ocasio-cortez ran defiantly to crowley's left with demands for universal health care, a federal jobs guarantee, and

1:03 am
that end. >> president trump clearly paying attention to the race tweeting, wow, big trump hater. congressman joe crowley who many expected was going to take nancy pelosi's place, just lost his primary election. in other words, he's out. that is a big one that no one -- nobody saw happening. perhaps he should have been nicer and more respectful to his president. might have more to do with the politics of his opponent than the politics of the commander in chief. >> that is the mother of all misreads on a wednesday. it is all but certainly mitt romney will be the next u.s. senator from utah. the former presidential candidate easily beating mike kennedy to capture the nomination with over 70% of the vote. he had the backing of president trump and is calling for a more respectful tone in washington. >> we prize education and rigorous debate, and we expect the people who are leaders to carry out these debates with civility and dignity.
1:04 am
>> romney's political career appeared to be over after losing to barack obama in 2012. he was encouraged to run by retiring senator orrin hatch. romney will face jenie wilson, a member of the county council, in the election. several other trump-backed candidates won races. south carolina governor henry mcmaster securing the republican nomination. his re-election bid bolstered by a pre-election appearance by the president. in new york's gopbent, dan donovan easily defeated the man who held the seat before him, now ex-convict michael grimm. president trump backed donovan. and rudy giuliani and donald jr. campaigned for him. >> on the democratic side, former naacp president capturing the democratic nomination for governor in maryland. he could become the first black governor, but will have to defeat popular republican

efficiency and accuracy as property. certainly that cannot satisfy the requirements. due process." health secretary caesar says only six kids have been reunited with parents since the president's executive order last week to stop separations. at the moment, confusion since reigns ashorities try to more than 2,000 families. the departments of homeland security, health and human services, and justice share responsibility. no single agency said it is leading the way. for more. nick valencia in south texas. >> reporter: we're outside the port isabel detention center. we want to be clear about something -- on friday i.c.e. officials told us that family reunifications would be happening. if that is the case, we've seen no evidence of it. it's part of the ongoing issue here on the ground. mixed messages from the trump administration and mass confusion, especially among those who are separated from their children. it was earlier that i spoke to a mother named yenitza who's been
1:07 am
separated from her 6-year-old little girl since early june and has been able to talk to her. but the 6-year-old is too young to understand the family separation policy and blames her mother for abandoning her. we're hearing these heartbreaking stories as a coalition of 18 toernattorneys general are suing the trump administration for, they say, constitutionally violating the due process rights of children and their parents. a call the trump administration -- they call the trump administration's family separation policy irrationally discriminatory. >> thanks. first lady melania trump has announced she will pay a second visit to immigration facilities this week. a spokeswoman says mrs. trump is moved by what she is hearing and wants to continue to check on children. >> but what will she wear, romans? what will she wear? jeff sessions claims critics of the trump administration's immigration policy are radicals and hypocrites. the attorney general slamming what he calls the open border crowd. in a speech before the criminal

[ applause ] >> you can hear the laughter and applause. sessions went on to say the president's critics will complain no matter what we do. senior fbi agent peter strzok set to speak to lawmakers behind closed doors this morning. sources tell cnn he will appear voluntarily before the house judiciary committee. the committee chair bob goodlatte lifted a subpoena, one he imposed even though strzok
1:09 am
had already said he was willing president trump and conservative backers have made strzok and former fbi lawyer lisa page the heart of their claim the bureau and justice department are biased against the president. >> strzok was removed from the mueller investigation after it was found here and page exchanged private texts disparaging candidate trump and his supporters. in one of the texts, strzok said he'll stop trump from becoming president. he will face a public hearing at a later date. today there will be a public hearing with chris wray and rod screen. they will faces -- rod rose screen. they will face questions about hillary clinton's emails. potential trump-putin summit will be discussed when john bolton sits down with sergei lavrov today. matthew chance live in moscow. good morning, matthew. >> reporter: good morning, that's right. john bolton, u.s. national security adviser, is having a
1:10 am
sit down working lunch with sergei the russian foreign minister, a couple of hours from now in the capitol. they will discuss laying the groundwork -- what we've been told from both sides -- for a potential meeting between president trump and vladimir putin of russia. there's been lots of anticipation about that summit taking place. a time and location has not been set yet, but various venues have been suggested. he's going to be in europe, president trump, over the course of mid july. he's attending a nato summit in brussels. after that he will visit the united kingdom on a state visit. the speculation is that the meeting with president putin, the summit, will take place either side of that. whenever and wherever it happens, it's still going to be extremely controversial. the optics of it are going to be very controversial, as well. this is a figure, vladimir putin in russia, who stands isolated in much of the western world at least for his fueling of the
1:11 am
conflicts in ukraine and in syria. his military is accused of shooting down a passenger airliner in 2014 in which nearly 300 people were killed. he's accused, of course, of meddling in the u.s. presidential election. so any kind of summit between the leaders will be seen as trump's critics as rewarding this russian leader despite him not having modified his behavior. >> absolutely. all right. matthew chance in moscow. thank you. about 30 minutes of news in 11 minutes. a lot more to get to. a ruling that could embolden the president's hard-line stance on immigration. the travel ban upheld by the supreme court, but the justice who provided the swing votes with word of caution for the president -- with words of caution for the president.

vinchlth vindication yesterday for president trump, a version of the travel plan that he once called watered down has been upheld by the supreme court.
1:16 am
>> this is a great victory for our constitution. we have to be tough, and we have to be safe, and we have to be secure. at a minimum, we have to make sure that we vet people coming know who's coming in, we know where they're coming from. we just have to know who's coming here. >> t 5-4 ruling gives the president broad powers to restrict travel in the name of national security, and the majority essentially disregarded his campaign statements calling for a muslim ban. >> the high court's swing vote justice anthony kennedy sided with the majority but sent a message to the president in a concurring opinion saying, quote, the very fact that an official may have broad discretion, discretion free from judicial scrutiny, makes it all the more imperative for him or her to adhere to the constitution a to its meaning and promise. many are waiting to see if justice kennedy will retire, giving president trump a chance to replace him with an
1:17 am
ideological conservative. >> the high court ruling also a big win for senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. in 2016 he blocked the nomination of president obama's supreme court pick merrick garland, paving the way for trump to nominate neil gorsuch who voted to uphold the travel ban. that's left democrats wondering what if. >> this is a moral moment in our country with a supreme court deciding today it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. it makes us less safe and undermines the values of our country. >> it sends a very ugly signal to people who -- who look at our country as a beacon of freedom and beacon of inclusion. >> steve bannon, a strong advocate for the travel ban when he was white house chief strategist, says the decision is a big deal for the president's psyche, bolstering his certainty that his instincts are right and the haters are wrong. the travel ban restricts entry from countries including north korea, but there's said to be little concern in the
1:18 am
administration this decision could hurt efforts to engage pyongyang in the denuclearization talks. president trump walking back plans to restrict chinese investment in the u.s. technology. instead, he may give more power to an existingommittee to protect u.s. tech. the administration will unveil investment restrictions this week. sources say it will block chinese firms from buying industrially significant technology targeting beijing's "made in china, 2025" plan. a plan by xi jinping to dominate high-tech industries. here's what trump said yesterday -- >> we have the greatest technology in the world. people copy it and steal . we have the great scientists, we have the great brains, and we have to protect that, and we're going to protect it. and that's what we were doing. that can be done through this -- we have a lot of things we can do it through, and we're working that out. >> cifus, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s., a body that reviews foreign
1:19 am
investments for national security threats. using that panel as a more measured approach than sweeping restrictions. it already is in place. it's been used by other administrations. trump added that the action will hit all countries, not just china, echoing treasury secretary mnuchin. mnuchin and trade adviser navarro sent messages that confused the markets. mnuchin said the new measure will affect any country stealing u.s. tech, navarro indicated it would focus solely on china. some of the indications from the administration prior to now is that this was about china and protecting the u.s. from some of the chinese shenanigans in trade -- >> seems those two are butting heads, mnuchin and navarro, inside the administration. >> one is more of a globalist. the other is a real china hawk. ahead, the president took his shots. now late-night hosts respond. >> going to lunch?
1:20 am
>> yeah, where do you want to eat? >> red hen? >> red hen! >> more of the late-night team effort next. thanks for the ride-along, captain! i've never been in one of these before, even though geico has been- ohhh. ooh ohh here we go, here we go. you got cut off there, what were you saying? oooo. oh no no. maybe that geico has been proudly serving the military for over 75 years? is that what you wa to say? mhmmm. i have to say, you seemed a lot chattier on tv. geico. proudly serving the military for over 75 years. you ok back there, buddy?

1:26 am
at the red hen for dinner. >> i see -- >> the red hen, by the way, will remain closed according to reports for another week or two. that is where sarah sanders was of course denied service, asked to leave. >> interesting. the late-night hosts with their video conference. >> a jolt to the democratic establishment to tell you about. a ten-term incumbent, member of leadership, defeated by a political newcomer. what it means for the party and efforts to retake the house in november.
1:27 am
1:28 am

by an upstart socialist. democratic leadership scrambling for a way forward. hours after the president's travel ballpark ban -- travel ban was upheld, a new legal batt on immigration. a judge says all families separated at the southern border have to be reunified fast. and peter strzok will face lawmakers. behind closed doors with the house judiciary committee. welcome back to "early start," everyone. good morning, i'm christine mans. >> i'm dave briggs. 4:31. did crowley get cantered? is this a bellwether? that is what happening in the republican party? the biggest upset so far. ten-term incumbent frank crowley ousted in the primary by democratic socialist alexandria ocasio-cortez. the 28-year-old latina trouncing crowley in her first political campaign. congressman crowley is the fourth ranked democrat on the house leadership. two democratic lawmakers said
1:32 am
tonight the upset significantly alters the competition for the speaker's gavel if democrats take the house. >> alexandria ocasio-cortez won federal jobs guarantee and abolishing i.c.e., immigration and customs enforcement. he leaned heavily on his position as a liberal, but she was not deterred. >> it's surreal. i did not see the numbers until now. i saw the numbers on television with you. i'm still processing a lot of this. working class americans want a clear champion, and there is nothing radical about moral clarity in 2018. >> alexandria ocasio-cortez is likely to be the youngest woman ever elected to the house. 28 years old. she -- crowdly out-raised her 10-1 and hadn't faced an opponent in 14 years. he was gracious in defeat and
1:33 am
said he will keep his word backing her in the general election. >> we have a great opportunity this fall in november to win back the house. although i -- >> and we will! >> i may have sacrificed a little early in that cause, i'm committed to that end. >> president trump clearly paying attention to the race, tweeting overnight, wow, big trump hater, congressman frank crowley, who many suspected would take nancy pelosi's place, lost his primary election, in other words, he's out. that's a big one nobody saw happening. perhaps we should have been nicer and more respectful to his president. joining us, senior writer and analyst harry enten. i will not ask you to analyze the tweet -- >> i wanted to. part of it was right, no one saw coming. the other part -- >> that part was correct. tip o'neill did say all politics is local. is this a national bel-- nation
1:34 am
bellwether or a race where frank crowley didn't pay attention to voters and the demographics shifted? >> i think part of that is correct. the demographics shifted in the district. that is now a majority minority district, crowley representing a district 68% nonwhite. he's a white male. that was going to be a problem heading into the primary. i do think there are lessons we can take and apply them more nationally. >> like what? >> number one, it's the year of the woman. two, the democratic party is younger, 18 to 29-year-olds and want power -- they want more progressive politics. the democratic party is becoming much more l. over 50% of democratic voters now identify as liberal according to gallup. and more than that, they are looking for a voice that perhaps is more independent from the establishment. democrats now identify more as independents than they have pretty much at any point recently. >> what's this to say about the leadership for the democrats at this point? i mean, you have a big shakeup for democratic leadership here. and where is the pipeline for these young women, progressive democrats? >> that's exactly right.
1:35 am
look at the democratic leadership in congress. you have chuck schumer, born in 1950. nancy pelosi born before that. and joe crowley was the youngest, i think born in 1962. so i think there was this real want for young leadership, and i think that the primary result here is an indication of that. >> interesting statement from the national republican congressional committee. house democrats hoping for a post-pelosi air are left leaderless. the only person happier tonight than nancy pelosi is the nrcc. let me ask you about the notion of a blue wave and all the energy on the left. four years ago, 67,000 people vote. only 27,000 turned out last night. where's the energy at all on the left in terms of the turnout? >> i -- you know, i would say, look, this is a congressional primary that is happening in late june. new york is one of the few states that has two primaries, one for state politics, one for federal politics. the fact that there was a lower turnout to me isn't that surprising. i think the fact that you saw so
1:36 am
many voters voting against frank crowley i think is a big story no matter what. >> in utah, all but the senator from that state, he won that handily, that primary. what is -- what kind of a leader is he going to be if he makes it into -- which everyone assume he'll make it into the senate? >> i think he'll certainly be someone more anti-trump than most republicans. he'll still vote with trump a number of times, especially on issues they agree with. keep in mind, utah is a state that mitt romney won by 50% points in 2012. donald trump only won it by about 20 points in 2016. if there's one state in the nation where you can be an anti-trump republican or at least give him a kick in the butt sometimes, it's definitely utah. >> a very gracious tweet, though, from president trump about mitt romney and his family. so clearly they are aligned for the moment. it was a good night for president trump overall, wasn't it? >> it was. south carolina runoff, mcmaster, the current governor, trump endorsed him. he won.
1:37 am
look at new york's 11th district. gop primary, dan donovan, trump endorsed, he won. and mitt romney, trump did endorse him -- although i don't think that put him over the -- >> the third version of trump's travel ban upheld by the supreme court. a good day for the president overall. if he want his instincts to be vindicated, they were yesterday. >> it was a good day for donald trump. let's put it that way. >> all right. nice to see you. come back. >> thank you. breaking overnight, a federal judge ordering the reunification of families separated at the u.s.-mexico border. san diego federal judge dana sabra ordered federal officials to stop detaining parents apart from their children unless the parent is unfit. the judge required the government to reunify parents with children under 5 within two weeks and ordered parents to be reunified with parents 5 and older within 30 days. >> unfortunately under the present system, she says, children are not cared for as
1:38 am
accurately as property. that cannot satisfy requirements of due process. the health secretary says only six kids have been reunited with the parents since the president's executive order last night to stop separations. >> at the moment, confusion still reigns as authorities try to reunitee th 000 families. multiple agencies including homeland security, health and human services, the justice department share the responsibility. no single agency has said it is leading the way. only a handful of children have been reunited, i think six with their families. first lady melania trump announced she will pay a second visit to immigration facilities sometime this week. a spokeswoman says mrs. trump is moved by what she is hearing and wants to continue to check on children. white house press secretary sarah sanders expected to receive secret service protection on a temporary basis beginning as early as today. the news coming days after sanders was asked to leave a virginia restaurant because she
1:39 am
worked for trump. a move that's amplified a national conversation on civility. sources say it is not known how long she will have the protection detail. neither sanders nor the secret service are commenting on the matter. republican congressm king, a hard-liner on immigration, tells cnn he did not realize he re-tweeted a message from a self-described nazi sympathizer. but he's also refusing to delete the tweet. >> i have no idea who he is. i don't know why we're giving him a world-famous name into the news. i'm not obligated to do a full background check on anybody. i'm not deleting that because then you all pile on and say king had to apologize he was wrong, he knows he's guilty. i'm not. i don't feel guilty one bit. i'm human. >> king says he only shared the message because it had a screenshot of a breitbart article. he has a history of making inflammatory comments about immigrants and espouses some of the most extreme views on immigration of any member of the house republican conference. a ruling that could embolden
1:40 am
the president's hard-line stance onimmigration. the travel ban upheld by the supreme court. the justice who provided the swing vote with some words of caution for this president. ahh... summer is coming.

all eyes on capitol hill as senior fbi agent peter strzok set to speak with lawmakers behindsed doors. sources tell cnn he will appear voluntarily before the house judiciary committee. chairman bob goodlatte lifted a subpoena, one he imposed even though strzok already said he was willing to testify. president trump and conservative backers have made strzok and former fbi lawyer lisa page the heart of their claim. the bureau and justice department are biased against the president. >> strzok was removed from the mueller investigation after it was found he and page exchanged private text disparaging president trump. in one of the texts, strzok said
1:45 am
"we'll stop trump from becoming president." tomorrow they hear from fbi director wray and deputy attorney general screrod rosens. a trump-putin summit will be discussed when john bolton sits down with sergei lavrov today. matthew chance with this. the timing could be interesting ahead of a nato meeting. >> repter: ahead of it or just after it, as well. the exact timing hasn't been made clear yet. it's something they'll be discussing today. the venue also hasn't been made clear. all sorts of options on the table. the latest according to u.s. officials is that they're discussing the possibility of helsinki, the capital of finland, close to the russian border, of course. before or after. there's a question about what the messaging would send, the
1:46 am
optics of a meeting between president trump and putin in july. whatever happens, it's going tol because vladimir putin is isolated by much the alliance countries, the europeans and others. the malaysian passenger airline that was shot down, more recently, the russians have been accused of involvement in the poisoning of the skripals in britain for which many of their diplomats were -- were expelled overseas. so however -- whenever the meeting happens, it is going to be extremely controversial. >> indeed. you will pay attention to the optics there given the relationship the president and angela merkel and others. matthew chance live in moscow. thank you. vindication for president trump. the third version of the travel ban, a version he once called watered down, has been upheld by
1:47 am
the supreme court. >> this is a great victory for our constitution. we have to be tough, and we have to be safe, and we have to be secure. at a minimum, we have to make sure that we vet people coming into the country. we know who's coming in, we know where they're coming from. we just have to know who's coming here. >> the 5-4 ruling recognizes that the president has broad powers to restrict travel in the name of national security, and the majority essentially disregarded his campaign statements calling for a muslim ban. >> the high court's swing vote, justice kennedy, sided with the majority. he sent a message to the president in a concurring opinion saying, quote, the fact that an official may have broad discretion, discretion free from judicial scrutiny, makes it all the more imperative for him or author adhere to the constitution and its meaning and its promise. many are waiting to see if justice kennedy will retire,
1:48 am
giving president trump a chance to replace him with an ideological conservative. >> the high court ruling also a big win for senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. in 2016 he blocked the nomination of president obama's supreme court pick, merrick garland. that paved the way for president trump to nominate neil gore such who voted to uphold the travel ban, leaving democrats to wonder what if. >> this is a moral moment in our country. what the supreme court decided today is not just wrong, it is dangerous. it makes us less safe. and it undermines the values of our country. >> sends a very ugly signal to people who -- who look at our country as a beacon of freedom and a beacon of inclusion. >> steve bannon, a strong advocate for the travel ban when he was white house chief strategist, tells axios the decision is a big deal for the president's psyche, bolstering his certainty that his instincts are right and the haters are wrong. the travel ban restricts entry

from seven countries including north korea, but there is said to be little concern in the administration that the decision could hurt efforts to engage pyongyang in denuclearization talks. trump threatening harley-davidson as it moves production overseas. tariffs will make the bikes in the eu more expensive. the president tweeted that harleys should never be built in another country, claiming they will be taxed like never before. they're moving production because they're trying to avoid the taxes. it was unclear what taxes president trump met or why the company would have to pay. harley will continue to make bikes for american customers in the u.s. trump has long championed harley-davidson as a model of american manufacturing. here's what he said about tariffs causing them to move -- >> harley-davidson is using that as an excuse, and i don't like that. i've been very good to
1:50 am
